Obama Compares Gulf Oil Spill to 9/11 – Angers 9/11 Families

Still showing his ineptness and trying to desperately divert attention away from himself, British and American families of 911 victims are angered at Obama’s recent comparison of the Deepwater Horizon Accident to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

From UK Daily Mail, 9/11 families’ fury as Obama compares BP oil spill to Twin Towers attack

British families of 9/11 victims described Barack Obama as ‘cruel’ yesterday for comparing the terrorist outrage to the BP oil spill.

The U.S. president said there were ‘echoes’ between the Gulf of Mexico disaster and the Al Qaeda suicide attacks which killed 2,995 people, including 67 Britons.

He said that just as the events of September 11, 2001, had profoundly shaped ‘our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy’, so the oil disaster would shape thinking on the environment and energy for years to come.

Those who lost loved ones when terrorists flew hijacked planes into the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Centre said Mr Obama’s remarks were yet another attempt to slur the UK.

Joy Bennett, 66, who lost her son Oli said, “I can see what he is trying to say but to compare a manmade deliberate terrorist attack to something that is an accident is absolutely wrong. Mr Obama seems intent on causing as much offence to Britain as possible. By saying this he is distracting from what his government is doing, or not doing enough of.”

American Ed Kowalski, of the U.S-based 9/11 Families for a Secure America Foundation, said: “It is a very cheap attempt to draw attention away from himself. He is desperate to be able to pull attention away from his failings.”

Kyron: School Super Carole Smith Please Come on My Show and Talk. Here’s My Number 503 225 0860. Ask for Eric.

The official search for missing seven year old, Kyron Horman, was called off on Sunday. The news conference where this was announced as described by Willamette Week (here) as alternately ‘testy’ and tearful. Sheriff Dan Staton officially has now described this case as a criminal matter.

Then the second-grader vanished and was gone nearly seven hours before anyone noticed. The Oregonian

It’s clear authorities aren’t telling us everything. Their actions over the past week incline me to believe they know who did this or think they know. If, however, it’s a stranger abduction then why the heck hasn’t the Superintendent of PPS come forward and explained her school system to the media?

“I wanted them [FBI] involved because the last time this child was seen was inside a school,” he [Sheriff Staton] said. “This was not a child walking away from their home or getting lost in the woods. This is a child who got lost inside a school with faculty there. That was the last time the child was seen.”

Look, I know Carole Smith isn’t personally responsible for Kyron’s snatching but she owes parents, students and taxpayers who fund the system and pay her salary an explanation of what she’s doing about it.

“This investigation really got going eight to 12 hours after it should have,” said Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI profiler and Virginia-based security consultant. “Whatever happened to this little boy, by the time authorities really geared up, they were 12 hours behind the power curve 

Every single day we have called and asked School Superintendent Carole Smith to come on the show and explain how a child appears to have been snatched from one of her schools.

The moment an adult took note that Kyron wasn’t at school Friday, an effort to find him should have been set in motion, Van Zandt said. The Oregonian

There has been a colossal break down in protocol,  but Smith hasn’t commented. It’s time. Here’s my number: 503 225 0860.
